We recently enjoyed another treat from D’Artagnan (www.dartagnan.com) – a special offer on Berkshire Porterhouse Chops.
These chops were juicy and tender, with the perfect amount of fat marbleized throughout the meat. The preparation was very simple. I seasoned the chops with salt and pepper, then made a drizzle consisting of a dash of cinnamon, a pinch of nutmeg, a few tablespoons of brown sugar and several tablespoons of maple syrup. After searing both sides of the chops on a grill pan on medium high heat on the grill, I poured two cups of Chadds Ford Winery’s Spiced Apple wine atop the pork. The apple wine created a sweet glaze as I continued to grill the chops for about 7 to 8 minutes per side.
What side dish could stand up to these generous chops? Baked apples, of course.
